A slightly spooky but certainly sweet treat perfect for Halloween, my Mummy Munch Snack Mix is a great way for ghouls of all ages to celebrate.
Pop the popcorn
1/3 cup white popcorn kernels (unpopped)
1 brown paper bag
For the Mummy Pretzels
2 cups pretzel nuggets
5 ounces white chocolate melting candy
0.5 ounces candy eyeballs (see notes)
For the Mummy Munch Mix
3 cups white popcorn (popped)
2 cups mini marshmallows
0.8 ounces large candy eyeballs (see notes)
1/3 cup slivered almonds
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup coconut chips (toasted)
1/4 skull and crossbones candy (see notes)
Pop the popcorn
Put your white popcorn kernels in the brown paper bag.
Roll the top down sealing the bag.
Pop in the microwave until the kernels are popped. This took me about 2:45.
Make the mummy pretzels
Melt your white chocolate candy in the microwave according to instructions.
Lay out your pretzels on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Drizzle the white chocolate over the pretzel nuggets making “mummy-like” stripes.
Add the candy eyeballs to each mummy, pressing the eyes into the white chocolate a bit so they will have a strong bond with the pretzels.
Chill in the fridge to set the chocolate.
Remove from the fridge and store until you are ready to mix the Mummy Munch.
Make the Mummy Munch
Mix together the popped popcorn, dark chocolate chips, marshmallows, slivered almonds, large candy eyeballs, and the toasted coconut chips.
Gently mix in the mummy pretzels.
Add in the skull and crossbones candy if desired.
Store in an airtight container until ready to serve for up to 5 days.
